Many people ask me, “I cannot find a job so why does Social Security say I can work?”

Social Security Disability does not deal with the real world. Most healthy people are having a hard time finding a job. So if you are sick and have a number of limitations, then it will be almost impossible to find a job.

However, Social Security Disability does not take into account the unemployment rate, or how hard it will be for you to find a job with your limitations.

The only thing they look at is whether any jobs exist for someone with your limitations, and the numbers of jobs available. The types of jobs available and the numbers of jobs are based on outdated government manuals.

The only way to deal with this approach is to attack the jobs the vocational expert cites based on the requirements of each job.
